Fast and Furious


Fast and furious. That's how the Christmas Hurricane arrived. We prepared for months, weeks and minutes up to its arrival and then when it finally rolled in - we gathered; we laughed; we ate; we remembered; we toasted our loved ones who were missing; and best of all, we simply enjoyed.

And then it blew over - quickly. For as we know,
Christmas does not linger, but the memories do.

I stole today - Boxing Day - for myself. And to an outsider, it may have looked as though I did nothing. And it would be true. I did nothing - consciously; deliberately; mindfully - to soak up every ounce of  serenity the day had to offer. Not a day wasted - but rather a day spent puttering, replaying, and reflecting. I am hoping that my blogger friends were fortunate enough to get some well deserved quiet time for themselves as well.

It is the calm aftermath of the frenzy -- the frenzy we love so much that comes and goes - fast and furiously!


That's right -- a green (soggy)  Christmas!

  1. Hi Lyn, I cannot believe it is green there! We are enjoying snow up here in the frozen north :0 and soon will be home to plant bulbs.
    I'm glad that you had an enjoyable Christmas :)

  2. More twinning activity, or rather none activity going on here.
    Just gotta cope with not staying flat though....

  3. I think the stillness is special too - hustle and bustle needs the contrast to balance it out.
